This is how it looks to me. Sen. John Glenn (D-Ohio) spends 98% of his time training and preparing for his own personal "joy ride," and the rest of Congress and the White House folks spend 98% of their time bashing and investigating each other. So my conclusion is that they are all overpaid by 98%, and meanwhile the business of government is being run by second-level management. And they accuse the public of not being interested in the government. They are wrong--98% of us are interested.

Please don't call them "taggers," or even worse, "artists." Call them what they are: "graffiti vandals." NANCY THOMPSON Irvine

A suggestion to the appellate judges that interpreted the law to read that mentally ill inmates should be released to the community (Sept. 3): Have the inmates live in the judges' ivory towers, and then see if perhaps the judges will have second thoughts. NANCY THOMPSON Irvine

Anyone who has raised a teenager can explain to experts why teenagers are smoking more (April 3). It's because everybody is telling them not to. NANCY J. THOMPSON Irvine
OPINION

Re "Suspected Spy Faced Inquiry 15 Years Ago," May 6: First, the FBI never tells the New Mexico lab or the Energy Department that Wen Ho Lee failed a polygraph test. When in a review of Lee's top-secret "Q" rating the information about the polygraph is discovered, it was sent to the Energy Department and was subsequently lost. The information that the FBI investigation would not be jeopardized if Lee's security clearance was lifted, or if he were transferred, was not passed on to officials at the Los Alamos lab. Did you ever wonder what happened to the Keystone Kops of silent movie fame?

TRAVEL

"Bear Country," by Nancy Thompson (June 19), painted a faithful picture of a beautiful part of Southern England where my wife and I spent the first years of our married life--an area we frequently revisit. There is so much else close by that one could write pages on the subject. However, as she mentions the restored steam railway, the famous Blue Bell Line, she should also mention the superb National Trust Garden almost opposite, Sheffield Park. The town of Haywards Heath, on the main rail line to Brighton, is an equally good starting point for excursions, although Tunbridge Wells is more interesting.

I was heartened to hear of Assemblyman Richard L. Mountjoy's sacrifice to ensure that Willie Brown does not get reelected as Speaker of the Assembly. Rather than being sworn in as a state senator, he is going to stick around the Assembly and forfeit his Senate seat, leaving it vacant once again. This is good news for Orange County. Assemblyman Ross Johnson (R-Placentia), who desperately wants to run for higher office, can carpetbag into Diamond Bar rather than carpetbagging to Newport Beach.
